The flight, which was operating as United Express, landed safely in Boise, SkyWest spokesman Layne Watson said in a statement.

The unidentified woman was seen shouting she wanted to die and "I am God" before trying to open the emergency exit door of the plane, a local ABC affiliate reported. "I have no idea if she was on some sort of medication and it wore off or if she had a bad reaction", Smith, a veterinarian who works as a consultant for an animal health company, added. They are now conducting medical and physical evaluations before sending her case to the local prosecutor to determine potential charges, a spokesperson from the Boise Police Department told CBS.

He said: "She wasn't acting right, or normal, from the very beginning".

Police and the FBI are investigating the incident and the woman is being held for a medical evaluation, officials say.

According to other passengers, the woman appeared nervous at first, but in no time, she started acting unusual. "The flight staff were real calm".

The first step toward better defenses, they say, would be to know in advance when the faster, more nimble missiles are coming. One of Putin's longest held beliefs is that cyberwar is a way to influence the informational battlefield.

All other passengers were able to safely deplane at the Boise Airport, and no one was hurt, according to SkyWest. "I could tell that one or both were uneasy with flying".

Scott T. Smith was sitting behind the woman during the flight.

SkyWest officials say the passenger was restrained on the flight, and police met the aircraft at the gate.

The FBI has launched an investigation into the mid-air drama, and possible charges have been referred to the prosecutor's office.
